Everseq is a healthy habit forming club. Using the autophagy, cell self-cleaning mechanism, won the Nobel Prize this year, Everseq helps live up to 120 years without age related diseases and cut costs 10 times compared to pharmaceuticals.

I’ve always been curious, why sequoias evergreen?
Why do they not shed leaves like other trees?
Why do they live longer, up to 3,500 years?

Science is what I found

Unlike deciduous trees Sequoia replaces leaves gradually. We can emulate similar approach using fasting. When the food reserves run out, the cell goes into maintenance mode. It starts the process of autophagy: the old and damaged proteins are processed, and the cell is released from the garbage accumulated in the process of life.

Food in stomach needs 12 hours for digestion. That means we can use short, one-day fasting for complete maintenance. For the full effect you need to fast once or twice a week. With the clear finish line – tomorrow you can eat whatever you want – such approach makes it easy to follow.

As sequoias age, they become so tall that osmotic pressure and a system of branching capillarity are not sufficient for water delivery to the top. capillarity are not sufficient for water delivery to the top. How did mother nature respond to this challenge?- It invented air roots that can capture water from the fog.

When we, humans, age, our metabolism slows down, we start helping our body with supplements, pills, and making regular trips to pharmacy. Recent study at Jackson Lab, Sacramento, CA led by A.Ryazanov, et. al helped to classify detoxifying substances into two classes: chelating agents (help to capture toxins) and xenobiotics (help our body to produce detoxifying agents). According to the study – best chelator is Citric Acid, while the best xenobiotic is Inulin.

The removed junk protein should be replenished. The adult person needs 200 g of old proteins to be replaced per day. Ribosome is responsible for the production of a protein in the cells. The amount of new protein depends on the number of ribosomes formed in the cells. Magnesium is the key element of ribosomes. So we either need to eat more protein or supplement your diet with Magnesium.

how to start autophagy

Will it work for me?

I started to eat ¼ of my daily caloric intake on Tue & Thu (yes, twice a week).

But next week-when the enthusiasm calmed down – I started to feel cravings. Aha… So it’s not going to be so easy! What if I suppress hunger with fiber rich foods?

I used regular bottles of 100%FOOD and it worked. One thing, though, I had to split one bottle into 3 intakes at 200 calories each. Later on I started to make smoothies based on 100%FOOD powder from the bag and calorie restriction days turned into a simple routine.

What do I eat on the regular days? On late hours of every Tue and Thu – my Green days – I often thought about big juicy hamburger, omelette or portion of ribs to have tomorrow. But strangely enough, the next morning came and I did not want to eat so much. I would even skip breakfast altogether. Till next time, my 6 egg omelette! During lunch the appetite spiked, as it was expected, but so did self-control over WHAT I’m eating.

I also noticed that I needed a new hole in my belt and new shorts after first week (no joking). And I even fit into my old beloved KEEN pants, which was a jewel of my achievements. During week 3 my weight stabilized and did not change since then. On week 6 I started to praise this fact even more than the weight loss itself. Because everyone who tried a diet knows that the weight comes back quickly after you stop and go back to old habits, which according to research most people do.

My results encouraged Anastasia (100%FOOD chief mixologist) to start her own experiment. Change in diet and mindfulness eating brought a very surprising result: by the end of week 2 Anastasia pulled all her resources together (i.e.: stopped crying about the hardships of “green days”), finished all her projects, and flew to Israel for vacation. What can I say? #GoEvergreen
